With that being said, he is a sleeper pick as a 2nd 1B in deep leagues. The Tigers are comfortable enough with him that they have no plans to upgrade at 1B. They could have looked at moving Eric Munson (will hit 35 HR's) to 1B but have chose to let him go.
Monroe - he has little business being on your fantasy roster. He will be a 4th - 5th OF at best for the 2005 Tigers.
I find your comments interesting. Please clarify a few for me, so that your meaning can be certain.....Are you saying that Eric Munson is going to hit 35 HRs in 2005? With the impressive 2nd half Monroe had (.321/.369/.638, 15 HR, 40 RBI) I expected him to be starting at one of the corner OF spots next year, what do you project their lineup will look like in 05 (assuming they don't sign any FA)? Thanks.
BTW, I agree with you on Pena....I've always thought he was a talented guy......I'm not sure if he will ever hit for great average, but if he can pull it up to around .265 and fulfill his power potential (30+ HRs) he will be a valuable ML player and a valuable fantasy player.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
